That’s what I was trying to say, by specifying home use. Commercial and industrial, and maybe hard-core computer use, sure. Movies, even in theaters? Probably not.
We're already past it. The brain can only process 2k worth of visual information.My recurring questuon is, At what point does the state of video technology surpass the ability of the healthy human eye to discern any difference--or, for that matter, the human brain to even care?
I have zero interest in 3D, but I think it was a huge missed opportunity when the transition from PAL and NTSC to HDTV occurred not to have one global standard, with support for 24p, 25p, and 29.97i. ATSC, DVB, and ISDB leave us in the same place we were before -- maybe worse, since there are three commonly adopted standards instead of two (if you count SECAM as part of PAL).The only interest I have in 8K is that there is a glimmer of hope that the new ATSC 3.0 OTA Broadcast System Standard includes Video System Characteristics for MVC 3D and supports 3D in 1080i, 1080P, 2160P and 4320P.
When the industry abandoned 3D support for 4K, I lost an interest in looking for any and all non 3D 4K products.
Yes, and so obviously and easily disproven by the clear difference between true 4K and 1080p, which is almost 2K already. Also obviously easily disproven by the clear difference between a true 4K Blu-ray and a 2K upscale to 4K.Ok.
So for now, it is strictly anecdotal by the subjective experiences of experts and movie enthusiasts ?
Quality is more important to some than to others.I don't know why 8K matters for home use. 4K barely matters, it just bundled into new stuff by default. Sorry to break it to the CE industry, but they hey-day of upgrading everything to get HD isn't coming around again. I can't imagine anything like that is going to drive sales again. If anything these newer formats are becoming niche as you have a whole generation that just streams content on their tiny little phones. Even with some of this stuff dropping into commodity price ranges, I still can't be bothered to replace a 12yo 32" 720p set I still have around, because it still just works on the rare occasion that I use it.
